A statistical method was developed to examine the US navy women's sizing system. Subjects including 906 navy female personnels were classified into seven groups based on the body type. Regression analyses were performed within seven groups to determine the sizing system maximizing the fitness of clothing in each group. New parameters were developed and used to statistically investigate the fitness level based upon boty navy sizing system and regression based system in this study. A customizef SAS program was used to compute the fitness levels. Results indicated that the navy sizing system showed lower fitness level in most groups except Juniour than the regression based system. It was concluded that the current method with new parameters could be used as an objective tool to evaluate the existing or new sizing system. This method can be further validated in other sample populations.
